It's an apricot jelly cookie bar recipe. It has crust on the bottom and is baked with the jelly on top. Today was my first attempt. Instead of using all almond flour, I used some pork rind flour because I know it absorbs some liquid. It ended up tasting great, but the crust won't hold together enough to cut it into bars, so we have to eat it with a fork. You don't grind the walnuts, you want them in small chunks. This is the crust I used today...

1 stick butter
1/4 cup Splenda Brown Sugar Blend, packed
1 egg
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons almond flour
1/4 cup pork rind flour
1 cup chopped walnuts

Any suggestions on how to give the crust more body so it will hold together? I think this will be a very good recipe once I get it right.

LIGHT CORN SYRUP SUBSTITUTE
2 c. white sugar (Is there something that could be substituted here)
3/4 c. water
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
Dash of salt
Combine all ingredients in a heavy, large pan. Stir and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and put cover on it for 3 minutes to get sugar crystals off the sides of the pan. Uncover and cook until it reaches soft ball stage. Stir often.
Cool syrup and store in a covered container at room temperature. It will keep for about 2 months. Makes almost 2 cups.

I substitute Da Vinci or Walden Farms sugar free pancake syrup for corn syrup.

The number of carbs in soy sauce depends on which brand you buy, but 1 cup of regular soy sauce = 19 to 20 total carbs. Some people substitute Braggs Liquid Amino Acids for soy sauce. I don't care for the taste, but that doesn't mean you wouldn't like it.

Brown sugar is sugar with molasses in it, so I would substitute artificial sweetener and molasses.

I can't find the nutrition information for Sweeta brown sugar, but Ideal and Splenda brown sugar both have about 1.5 carbs per teaspoon. That would equal over 70 carbs per cup. I wonder if Sweeta brown sugar is the same.
